The Jam Event in Santa Barbara

What happens when you challenge California’s best group of wedding vendors to pull out all the stops for an 80's themed showcase of their talents at one of the most unique venues  Santa Barbara? [And when we say unique we mean a venue complete with multiple green houses…. Gardens and even a psychedelic skate park….]

We’ll tell you what happens…. The party of the freakin’ century!! In case you miss it on our insta story... Last month Tinker Tin was lucky enough to be a part of the third annual Jam Event and wowwweeee!!! It was like nothing we’d ever seen before. It was like the olympics of California's wedding vendors and everyone involved that showcased their incredible talent were gold metal winners! 

The Jam Event Santa Barbara

The event was produced by Jaime at Wild Heart Events and Sophie at Amazing Day Events. We cannot say enough about the incredible production these fabulous ladies brought everyone together for!The theme this year was the 80’s. If heaven has an 80's genre... We may have gotten an early sneak peak. And when we say heavenly we mean KFC themed gourmet eating, hair crimping bar, pink flamingos everywhere you look kinda heavenly. 

We rolled in our mobile bar trailers, set up shop with Sidecar and served delicious cocktails and ice-cold beer all night while we partied the night away! Here are few of our favorite shots from the night!

 We might be biased but we're pretty damn sure Sidecar is the best mobile bar service in California and the line of people waiting for cocktails all night proved it (we're also pretty sure cocktails taste better when served out of a vintage trailer)! 

The Wedding Standard

Our incredibly talented friends from The Wedding Standard chose the theme Miami Vice & they nailed it!

If there was an award for the most awkwardly dress group.... We for sure would have won it. But we L O V E our Sidecar-Tinker Tin team!! 

We've never seen a skatepark look SO GLAM!! This was one of 5 different party rooms transformed into a clever/gorgeous/awesome/amazing setting!!

YES THERE WAS EVEN A SILENT DISCO ROOM....

The Tinker Tin Bride

The New Year means new trailers, new adventures and especially NEW BRIDES!!!

We have come to find that all our Tinker Tin Brides have a few things in common.... they are a unique kind of lady that beats to their own drums, crave adventure, and are typically more drawn to out of the box ideas and putting their personal touches on each and every part of their wedding weekend! This is their Big Day and their Love Story, and any ol' wedding just ain't going to cut it!

To celebrate 2017 weddings, we wanted to appreciate the creative master minds behind some of our past Brides weddings!

Tinker Tin Trailer's vintage rentals have been a part of Rustic Barn Weddings, Modern Glam Weddings… Colorful & culturally influenced weddings (one even included an ELEPHANT RIDE)... The list could go on, but one thing is for sure... no two Tinker Tin weddings have been the same!

We’ve rolled our trailers into gorgeous ranches and wineries for weddings here in our hometown of San Luis Obispo County, on down to Santa Barbara, Malibu, Los Angeles, and San Diego ... up to Napa, Ca, San Francisco and across state lines to Arizona, Austin, Texas (we love a good road trip)! It’s been an honor and a privilege to see and be part of the incredibly unique and personal weddings our Tinker Tin couples dream up with the love of their lives!

Now to the Tinker Tin wedding inspiration part of this blog…. (Note… We love all of our Brides equally, so whether your photos on here or not... this blog is a Thank You to you!)

The vintage trailer photo booths are so much fun at weddings! The guests and wedding party alike have so much fun creating everlasting memories inside of it! The vintage trailer photo booth interior is custom styled to match your wedding day style and color!!

One of our favorite parts of the photo booth is the guest book of photos and memories we gift to the Bride and Groom so they can see photos of their wedding guests forever. We seriously encourage you to check out the entire wedding feature on Snippet & Ink.

The MOST Dreamy Camping Inspired Weddings

Camping feeds the Tinker Tin soul which is why we couldn't be more obsessed with the growing trend of camp weddings. Whether it's the on the beach, in the woods or at the desert Tinker Tin's tipis, bell tents & trailers are most at home boondocking with all the adventurous couples who have a passion for the great outdoors! Our tipis and bell tents can be styled into the perfect honeymoon sweet or reception lounge! See for yourself....

A California Barn Wedding with Heather and Freddie

Featured on Green Wedding Shoes, this California barn wedding was ultra romantic! Heather and Freddie were the sweetest couple, and so was their family! You can tell a lot about a couple also, by the friends they surround themselves with (and Heather and Freddie's friends rocked!)! 

Bridal Photo Inspiration

An Enchantingly Rainy Barn Wedding at Swallow Creek Ranch in Cayucos, Ca.

Kelsey and Alex planned to have sunny day ceremony overlooking the ocean in Cayucos, Ca. However, rather than sunshine they ended up having to work with thick fog and every Bride’s biggest fear… RAIN! Rather than ducking for cover however, this couple happily embraced the weather and decided to dance in the rain!

This quickly became one of our favorite weddings! The rain added a romantic and magical atmosphere, plus Kelsey and Alex were such a neat couple surrounded by so much Love! We were too honored to put our Tinker Tin twist through out their wedding with out Sioux Tipi, 1964 Ford, 1961 Shasta Bar Trailer and 1948 Barrel Trailer keg trailer....  Here’s an amazing Super8 video by Mark Brown that captured the day PERFECTLY! Such an awesome couple!
